Summer History Camp at the Warwick Historical Society
August 6-10, 9AM-2PM at the Warwick Historical Society there is a wonderful program of living history hands-on learning activities being offered for kids ages 8-11.

There will scenarios that re-create life and culture of Native Americans in 18th Century Warwick. Pottery and weaving activities will be presented by local artists. A felting project will result in a multicolored felt "geode".

Kids can unearth fluorescent crystals native to Warwick and bend a horseshoe nail into a ring with a blacksmith. Step back in time to Civil War camp life as well as Revolutionary War life as it was in this community.

Experience 18th and 19th century tools, spin wool, and cook food al fresco. Bring your own lunch. Snacks and drinks provided. $175 per camper, siblings $150 each. Make your reservation now by registering and payment.
